Rupert Still Not Ready

Work continues at Rupert Elementary School. 
One month after the Pottstown School Board was told Rupert Elementary School renovation work
would not be completed in time for the opening of school, there is still no definite opening date.

Superintendent Jeff Sparagana and Business Manager Linda Adams updated the board on the progress at all three of the schools which were under renovation this summer.

Sparagana said after the meeting that much will depend on the inspections scheduled to occur today and that he is unwilling to offer up a time frame for the opening of the renovated building until the results of those inspections are known.

Sparagana said as soon as the school is "substantially completed" they will begin to move in classroom items and library books currently in storage, hopefully in time for the start of the second quarter.

The school board had no questions for the administration on Rupert's status Monday night.

The board did, however, without comment of public explanation, unanimously approve another $125,000 in change orders for all three schools, the majority of which were for Rupert.

Here are the Tweets from last night's meeting, which lasted less than an hour.
